wouldn't need more nurturing, that it would have achieved velocity from government support. it didn't and now they're forced to back up and say, oh, we didn't mean to let you think that we crossed the economy off to the-do list. gwen: and we know that the white house chief of staff, emanuel did have qualms. it was clear health care was going to be a hard slot and wanted to do financial reregulation first. >> but, you know, to be the devil's advocate, so they had put in place by the first month in office, february, 2009, this nearly $800 billion, two-year economic stimulus plan. meanwhile at treasury they're working on the financial stability plan for the banks and the fed is doing the monetary policy. so, you know, they can do, they can walk and chew gum at the same time so these committees are taking up health care and these other things. i think they know that when the results are in in november, the big argument is going to be that they overreached.
